Caring for our children's future
Autism and ADHD pressing issues?
According to 2012 ABS figures, 1 in 33 children aged 5 to 9 was diagnosed with Autism in Australia. This is nearly double the 2009 figures. Based on trends since 1980, it is estimated that by 2020, this figure may well reach 1 in 20. And it will keep getting worse.
Opportunity to participate in Research and treatment
Does your child have ADHD, or do you suspect he or she has ADHD?
If so, your child is invited to participate in a research study. Together with the Behavioural Neurotherapy Clinic, Victoria University is conducting a 6 month study investigating the "effect of diet alteration and nutrient supplementation" on the behaviours of children with ADHD. For the current study, your child will be assessed at baseline and after a six month treatment regime using a number of tests including cognitive functioning (e.g., attention and thinking), brain electrical activity, sleep, behaviour and gut symptoms and this will help us understand the relationship between diet and nutrition in children with ADHD. If your child meets the inclusion criteria, below, participation is free.
